When a child first enters foster care through Texas Department of Family Protective Services (TDFPS), the first plan is always reunification with their parents. Unfortunately, there are times when this plan changes and TDFPS seeks another family to become the child’s parent. This is where you come in.
We are always looking for families to adopt children who need love, commitment and understanding. We license the homes of Foster Parents for both foster care and adoption so that you have the option to become a forever family to a child who needs you. Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS) also offers trauma-informed training to help prepare you for the behaviors and emotional challenges they may face due to their history of abuse and/or neglect. This unique training offers insight into the child’s world by explaining how their experiences help shape them and their perceptions.
PCHAS is committed to providing you with the best information and training to be ready to accept these children into your home and to help you maneuver the system that has placed them in your care. We believe and see that children are resilient and deserve a chance to have a loving, stable family.
